but look at this, a cbs news poll of uncommitted voters showed that biden won by double digits, 50-31 with a sizable number saying it was a tie. snap polls like those represent fewers' gut reaction to the debate which can change over time. it is still not quite clear whether any of this will matter. in the past the v.p. showdowns rarely make a difference when voters ultimately head to the polls. john roberts with the news from richmond, virginia, are governor romney campaigned today. what dough we hear from the campaign today? >> well, not surprisingly we are hearing from both sides they won and based on the polls you just pointed out, they may be right. not surprisingly both sides are attacking each other over things that were said last night. obama campaign taking aide at romney saying they will cut taxes 20 percent across the board and paul ryan would not come up with details. >> we want to work with congress on how to achieve this. this means successful. >> no specifics? >> we saying lower tax rates 20 percent, start with the wealthy, work with congress. >> you guarantee this.

believe ryan won, which a couple of polls, c-nbc and cbs show him winning, other polls believe biden won. i believe it's a wash. if you say that biden won, my bet is that bernard believes that -- even if you believe that, you take the most emphatic democratic win in 1988 -- didn't matter. it just doesn't matter when it gets down to it. >> bernard, let's move to the movements and polls in ohio, pennsylvania, florida and virginia. real clear politics average has obama up slightly, but nevertheless, i think the bump that mitt romney received from the debate performance was a little bit bigger than most people, certainly myself, predicted. go ahead? >> i think that's true. but what the vice-president debate did is blunt that. i think we have seen the end of the momentum on mitt romney. and the eyes will be on tuesday. at then of the day, is mitt romney ahead 4 points in florida, according to rasmussen? that's within the margin of error. scott rasmussen is a friend of mine, but his polls tend to lean republican. ultimately what will decide those states and nationally are suburban women. i thi
list, but we have an information what mr. wood will say. cbs it reporting that he met with ambassador stevens just about every day between february when his mobile security deployment team until august when he left just about a month before the deadly raid which was reportedly about the time his team's mission was over. and wood told cbs that it's unbelievable to him, that his team was pulled out of libya, given the fact that he says he was constantly trying to demonstrate to the state department how dangerous, volatile and unpredictable things were in libya, as for the investigation on the ground, the fbi says they continue to coordinate with the state department, justice department and the defense department it figure out exactly what happened and who was responsible. but remember that the fbi wasn't able to get boots on the ground there for about three weeks after the raid when they'd already left the country. back to you in new york. >> peter doocy, thank you so much for that update. let's get the rest of your headlines now, we have to tell you about the rare fungal meningitis out
correspondent is going to battle with the president. cbs news, laura logan did her own investigation of al qaeda in afghanistan and she insists there is a lie out of washington that the military might has tamed the taliban. she warns the taliban and al qaeda are coming back and logan also claims that the u.s. should exact revenge on the libya terror attack. and a senior state official says in the state department, his department never said that the attack was sparked by protests from the video. john bolton is here. good evening, sir. state department says, don't blame us, we never said video, saying it on the eve of a committee hearing tomorrow. >> i think the wheels have been coming off the administration's version of this incident for a long time. i think the reality has always been that these were terrorist attacks in the case of libya, and radical demonstrations in cairo and other countries in the middle-east. and the whole idea that this somehow was caused by the video has never withstood scrutiny. that's why the administration, i think is so concerned about the hearings and then when you h
. that's what security team commander is telling cbs news. he says u.s. officials pulled his 16-member team from tripoli a few weeks before that assault as other staffers voiced concerns about potential gaps in security. here is how the commander summed it up. quote, i felt like we were being asked to play the piano with two fingers. that attack last month in benghazi killed four americans, including our ambassador, chris stevens. james rosen is live in d.c i'm curious, has anybody else said yeah, we were looking for more security. instead, they pulled security out? >> the chairman of the house intelligence committee told me that is his understanding as well. multiple investigations are now underway from the f.b.i. agents on the ground in libya to the state departments internal' view board, to lawmakers pressing for answers. >> we've requested c.i.a. cables. we've requested the department of -- excuse me. department of state cables that relate to this security of the facility as would relate to issues of my committee, and they've been a little slow in cooperating thus far. >> wednesday
interrupting each other. >> among undecided voters cbs snap poll said biden won 50 to 31. 1% called it a draw. vice president in lacrosse, wisconsin today. >> anyone who watched that debate, i don't think there is any doubt that congressman ryan and i, governor romney and the president we have a fundamentally different vision for america. >> when biden ridiculed romney for suggesting 47% of the people who don't pay income taxes have a government comeback, ryan had a ready-made zinger. >> with respect that quote, vice president knows sometimes words don't come out of your mouth the right way. >> bideryan was earnest. if not brand. the weakest moment was when he said the stimulus was wasteful spending. >> he sent me two letters saying by the way, can you send me stimulus money for companies here in state of wisconsin. we sent millions of dollars. you know why he said -- >> you did ask for stimulus? >> sure he did. >> on two occasions we advocated for constituents applying for grants. it's what we do. we did it for all constituents. >> i love that. i love that. >> romney continues to surge in ba
on either side. >> the polls are showing something completely different. cbs, cnn, all the polls are showing that, in fact, they believe that ryan won. so i don't know where jehmu is getting her polls from. maybe from the democratic national committee. i want to show something that's on facebook. >> eric: this is becoming a fundraising tool for both sides. look at this. this is a take off on kanye west in 2009 when he interrupted taylor swift. this is from the national republican congressional committee. as you can see, it says, you know, let me interrupt you, let me finish. no, i'm not, so the republicans are using that to try to raise money against joe biden. but the democrats are supporting him. look at this. they're saying, way to go, joe. and they're now -- that's a bunch of malarky. jehmu, which side will win? >> i think vice president biden did what he needed to. there is no question and democrats haven't sat back and whined the way that republicans have. we were clear in saying look, president obama was not up to his best game in that first debate. but vice president biden absolutely
, the other guy's campaign promises a lie. how can that be? here's david axelrod on cbs's "face the nation." are you saying that governor romney died or was dishonest? >> dishonest, absolutely. when he said he never proposed $5 trillion in tax cuts, that was dishonest. >> when senator obama said in 2008, i'm going to cut the deficit in half, close gitmo, people said that was unrealistic, but didn't say he wasn't telling the truth. there's a difference, isn't there? >> no. closing gitmo involved an act of congress, and he wasn't able to get congress to agree with him on that question. this is basic math. >> greta: joining us our political panel, abc news senior washington editor rick klein, casey huntington, and byron york. rick, first you. i thought it was executive order to close gitmo, just needed congress to place the people. am i right? >> they realized it was going to be harder than they wanted. the distinction he's making is in terms of campaign pledgrs oche it's a stretch, obviously -- >> a stretch! it's name calling. >> there is a lots of that going on. one thing i am struck by, yo
they didn't have that same feeling and they do now. even in california the local cbs 5 poll showing an 8-point game for mitt romney. he is still like 14 points behind in california but if he is moving up that far in california that is not insignificant. i think without a doubt mitt romney in this debate has to show that connection and abill to be a little is self-deprecating and on the march but staying off the defense. on the defensive i think he looks weak. he has to stay on the march. >> chris: what do you think is is the top priority for the president in the debate and being that it as town hall how does he get more aggressive with romney when has to respond to real people with real problems and not just questions from reporters? >> the race is volatile and can two either direction i think. what is really important for obama, he can't come on in the next debate and all of a sudden be a different person in a radical way. people are going to say wait a minute, is this showmanship. and i think the key question is remember everyone was kicking around this idea of are you better off now t
and planation. i will say this is what is difference cbs o the ground oiny t sdndd u cnn got the journal and lambasted by the secretary of state's staffer for putting it forward and said it was news worthy and not personal. they took on every news agency aihetsornd state department pointed in the administration. >> gretchen: because the way the state department answered this question yesterday: do you agree with the white house tapayheconclusion tha t rrt aache s department said you would have to ask others. that was not our conclusion. >> steve: they have got themselves a scandal with a month before thelection and we toldouda ab ass tea she played dee in clueless. it turns out, she who once upon a time supported back oba a suprt miom >>an death slams. >> steve: who wound up contacting her? paul ryan. and then later there was this tweet. had a grtrsioth eyh. gheauryan had a personal experience like stacey dash in college . he dated an africa-american woman. and he sai he could ta w domng tha sort of an th pe dee wi? >> brian: for some reason, on the 5 yesterday that was my block and i pu
skyrocketed. we saw that among uncommitted voters in the cbs poll, after the debate, and we talked about this last week, 30 percent of the people say he cared about them, it doubled to 53 percent. he did what we suggested. by the way that is the important thing, changing the structure of the race. that now ahead it a real close race, not just in numbers but in context. >>gregg: in all of the attack ads over the last six months, $100 million has been spent by the obama campaign demonizing mitt romney and i think the public expectation was expecting this crazed guy who kills people. those were the ads and suddenly on wednesday night they see a guy who is pretty reasonable. >> he did the best job any candidate could possibly have done. i cannot find fault with anything romney did. >> reagan said he was better than his dad in 1980. >> what it has done, it has altered the passion differential we have talked about since the conventions, republicans extra been down in -- republicans have been down in the mouth, and in an hour and a move, the democrats are mad at obama and republicans are unifie
. he told cbs, it is unbelievable to him that the state department decreased security in libya when they did because he showed them how dangerous and volatile and unpredictable the entire environment in libya was with at least 13 security incidents before september 11, backing up his case. as for his testimony this week, former u.s. ambassador to the u.n., john bolton, toll us today, he happenings the state department needs to listen and learn quickly. >> the state department should not wait for the conclusion of its own administrative review board, which won't report for 60 days, there ought to be an ongoing process to try to enhance the security of diplomatic and other official personnel in the middle-east and elsewhere. >> reporter: at the house oversight hearing, we will hear from sharl eep lamb, the deputy assistant secretary for programs at the bureau of diplomatic security and eric nordstrom, a regional security officer for the state department. >> shannon: thank you very much. some controversial anti-jihad ads in some anti-muslim will go upn the d.c. metro system this weeken
of thought to these big issues. cnn gave the nod to paul ryan in their poll they did last night. cbs gave the nod to joe biden. >> biden did well two. ryan was after the independent, undecided voter. biden was after the democrats that were unenthusiastic about people who were not impressed with the obama debate, the true believers, joe took a couple of five-hour energy tkreupblgt drinks beforehand. maybe he over did it a little bit. came out there, he has white treat that he likes to grimace and show and grin as much as possible. he did what he needed to do which is to stay to democrats, obama had a terrible performs are form answer in the first debate and i made up for it in the second. bill: this is joe biden and paul ryan talking about -- ryan reached the point of frustration with the grimacing and interruptions and the smiling and this is what happened. >> this is a man who gave 30% of his income to char ao a tee, more than the two of us combined. romney ace good man. he cares about 100% of americans in this country. and with respect to that kwoerbgts i think the vice president very w
